Public interest assessment
In the case of an application for the grant of a licence, the applicant may be required to demonstrate that the application is in the public interest, having regard to the likely health and social impacts on the community and sub-groups within the community.
The public interest assessment will require the applicant to satisfy the licensing authority that it is in the public interest for the application to be granted.
Where an applicant is lodging an application for an extended trading permit for ongoing extended hours at the same time as an application for the grant of a licence, a separate Public Interest Assessment (PIA) must be lodged for each application as the
information and evidence in support of the extended trading permit will be different to that of the grant.
For further details on the public interest assessment requirements please refer to the Director's policy and PIA template form.
